Classical Pick of the Week: Christopher Eschenbach at the Mouse House
This CNN excerpt shows the visually stunning organ at the Disney hall but the sound is not something easily duplicated. Check it out tonight at the Disney Hall at 7:30 for the full experience. Also, Christopher Eschenbach returns to the Disney Hall for a set of concerts showcasing his abilities as a conductor and pianist. Eschenbach has been conducting all weekend long, with a concert at 2 of Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev. If the 2 PM concert is too late for you, check out the organ concert tonight at 7:30 PM. If you haven't heard it, the Disney Hall organ provides one of the most exciting and intense sounds that you'll ever hear from any instrument. Naji Hakim is the soloist, of music by Hakim, Franck, and Couperin.
On Tuesday at 8 PM, Eschenbach will collaborate with members of the LA Phil and perform popular chamber works by Dvorak and Schubert. Also, on Goldstar, you can buy tickets for half off to several classical events. Included are the opera Aida, shows at the Hollywood bowl, and ballets.
